Good news: Craft Arts Market is re-stocked and ready for all you book-lovers, journal writers and sketchbook fiends!
If this isn’t your local handmade/hand crafted items shop, it’s totally worth a day trip to St.Catherines to check them out. Make sure to leave enough time for a fresh, vegan doughnut from their next door neighbour (seriously, don’t forget this part).

Today in the studio I’m working on some Mini Book Necklaces for a retailer. They’re tiny, functional, beautiful and inspirational. They are designed to keep your hopes and dreams close to your heart. And, of course, they’re made from reclaimed materials.
